Respites

Obscure Atlanta laws

If you film a movie here it must suck. Really suck. As in, even morons think it sucks.

To put it another way, the Burt Reynolds oeuvre ranks as Atlanta’s cinematic high point (“Deliverance,” a true classic, was filmed in Georgia, not the ATL).

The competition:

  • The American Pie “reunion”;
  • more than one Katherine Heigl movie;
  • one Miley Cyrus movie;
  • too many Tyler Perry movies;
  • The Three Stooges;
  • Dumb and Dumberer;
  • Freejack, featuring Mick Jagger playing second banana to Emilio Estevez;
  • The Slugger’s Wife;
  • and, coming soon, the movie sure to out-suck them all, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, starring J-Lo and Cameron Diaz.

A look at love through the eyes of five interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and ultimately coming to understand the universal truth that no matter what you plan for, life doesn’t always deliver what’s expected.

  1. I got a vhs of “Freejack” at a yard sale for 25 cents. It was worth it.

  2. I was fortunate enough to see ‘Fled’ just the other evening.
